In the body 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin is found in the brain, blood platelets and cells of the gastrointestinal tract. Since serotonin is found in the brain and central nervous system, it has many implications in cognition, mental health and sleep patterns. Supplementation of 5-HTP has shown an ability to increase serotonin levels.* 5-HTP is an extract from a natural plant seed from Africa (Griffonia) and not from fermented tryptophan. In studies on sleep deprivation, 5-HTP supplementation exhibited promising results. Early research studies show that supplementing with 5-HTP can increase availability of serotonin, which in turn increases production of melatonin. Raising melatonin concentrations has shown to have positive effects on sleep patterns. In a six-week clinical study, subjects that supplemented with 5-HTP were able to reduce carbohydrate intake, which significantly supported weight management.*
